About

Avendi

DESIGN STUDIO

Avendi Media is a creative design studio based in Washington DC, serving a premium clientele. We have the privilege of working with organizations such as National Institutes of Health and FINRA, with a focus on Fortune 500, B2C brands, such as Four Seasons, Calphalon and Microsoft.

What makes us different, and has allowed us to build a rather enviable portfolio, is how we approach our work. We pride ourselves on our professionalism, responsiveness and efficiency. Working closely with our clients, we strive to eliminate the barriers that often arise between marketing and creative teams.

IDEAL TEAM

Our team is deliberately small in number, affording us the critical talent we need, without the excess that lands five people in a meeting when two would do. It allows us to tailor the ideal team for each engagement and to work faster, smarter, and more effectively.

At the highest level, our work encompasses digital media and web sites, branding and print design. Beyond these core competencies, we also have a network of top talent which can be easily mobilized for client needs. This includes content strategy, copywriting, video production, photography, and any other creative service you may require.

DELIVER

1 // DISCOVER

Every Avendi project begins by working closely with our clients and developing a Creative Brief to gain a deep understanding of the project goals. This allows us to gather relevant information for all aspects of the project such as client goals, target audience, challenges, positioning, image and style.

2 // DESIGN

Targeted concepts are conceived through a series of internal design sessions. Ideas are developed and refined until initial concepts are ready to be presented. Based on client feedback, the chosen concept is refined and presented again. A final concept is approved or more refinements are made based on client feedback.

3 // DEVELOP

Once design concepts are finalized and approved, Avendi brings the project to life by creating interactive prototypes, testing, and ultimately implementing all deliverables. Prior to delivery, files are tested again and streamlined for optimum results.

4 // DELIVER

When development is complete, Avendi delivers or deploys final assets, testing again for accuracy and proper implementation. If necessary, support and training is provided to ensure a smooth transition and a successful project.
